NAVMAN S50 Screen Freeze

My S50 often (about once every 3 or 4 trips) screen freezes so that the directions and instructions still are heard and the distances etc are still shown but the moving boomerang icon disappears and the street view stays at one that was previous. Fixes with a few touches of the screen but this is a distraction. I have downloaded and installed the faster recalc fix for Australian only NAVMANs and that is brilliant!

    No. Sorry I gave the wrong impression. The patch that I downloaded did NOT fix the screen freeze problem but it did greatly increase the recalculation speed (which it was supposed to do). Screen still freezes about 3 or 4 times a week.

    Yes I do. That was the faster recalc fix:

Navman s80 freezes and states memory is full what do i do can you delete existing memory if so how do you do it

With Navman S80s screen froze only when trying to input home or destination address was working but suddenly started to screen freeze. Followed Gossages instruction and undid two bottom screw, then had to pop off side covers. Found two screws that where loose inside and floating around. Inspected the insides and found no Micro Card (clearly it is slightly different in manufacture) removed ribbon cable and re-installed, re assembled unit tested and everything back to normal, Ya? Dare say the loose screws floating around had caused a little short circuiting somewhere or perhaps ribbon cable connection was problem. Which ever a clean out of foreign material from inside did the trick?

Navman S50

My Navman S50 has been working fine the other day it decided to show me the safety agreement when switched on then shows half the screen black with navman S50 printed in the black section the other half shows a picture of a pretty womans face looking backwards from a car window. I can get to the main menu and then takes me in a circle back to the safety agreement I've tried resetting by holding the on off switch down for 6 seconds when switching off the device is there any other way to reset my navman S50.
